2. Recurrent famines, floods, incompetent n lazy rulers from within, exploitative rulers from outside, n the regular changes in the state religion moving b/w #Buddhism, #Hinduism, #Sunni Islam & #Shia Islam make Kashmir a hotbed of unrest over centuries with millions of deaths!
3. Here are few kings who contributed to the glorious periods in Kashmir.
Lalitaditya (724-761) was a great admin n a builder. He reorganised the admin machinery, added new functionaries including chief minister, Sr Chamberlain keeper of treasury. #GoodRulers #KashmirHistory Image

A basic explanation on why the situation in #Iraq suddenly became so tense — follow this THREAD 🧵

Following the resignation of Ayatollah Haeri from the position of Marja al Taqlid, Moqtada al-Sadr, an Iraqi Shia cleric, announced on Monday that he will leave politics forever.1️⃣
Marja al Taqlid is a title given to the highest ranking #Shia clerics. A person with title would have the authority to make legal decisions within the confines of Islamic law for followers and lower-ranking clerics. 2️⃣
Ayatollah Haeri, today after announcing that he will no longer continuing to be a Marja al Taqlid, he invited Iraqi Shias to follow and obey Ali Khamenei. He described the leader of #Iran as "the most worthy person to lead the Islamic world". 3️⃣

1. The attack on #Kabul Cricket Stadium is as yet unclaimed, but it’s worth noting that, as of today, #ISKP has been inactive for 13 days in a row.

That’s the longest period since September 2021, when it was gearing up to launch the most intensive campaign in its recent history.
2. This summer’s slump has seen #ISKP become somewhat sidelined as an issue in #Afghanistan.

This graph shows mentions of the keyword “Daesh” on #Taliban social media since mid-2020.

Note how things peaked in Q4 2021 when #ISKP was at its most virulent.
3. We’ve also seen a slump in official #ISKP media releases (as in, those published through #IS’s Central Media Diwan).

Importantly, this lull hasn’t been reflected in the activities of #ISKP’s less globally prominent Pashtu and Dari media offices.

The first topic in the #Taliban Cheif Justice, Abdul Hakim Haqqani's book on the Islamic Emirate& its governance, is the #type_of_government. According to him, there are two main types of governments in the world:
1. A state& government whose Motto is collection of revenue/taxes. Image
2. A state& government whose Motto is Guidance (Propagation of Virtue& Prevention of Vice).
According to the author of the book, there is no need to give examples of Tax Govts, as they nowadays make majority or almost all of the world govts.
But governments of guidance are #rare. Image
According to Sheikh Abdul Hakim Haqqani, the 3 #pillars of the #government_of_guidance are as following:
1. Independent #Judiciary
2. Islamic #Army
3. #Sharia_Law
He also mentioned 7 reasons for rejection of man-made laws, which are based on what the God or his Messenger said. Image

A thread 🧵

It is felt in #Iran that Taliban in neighboring Afghanistan have outwitted the Iranian authorities/policy-makers as tensions with the group is rising. After a border incident in late April, now Iranians want to conduct a census of Afghan population in Iran. 1
Remarks by a member of Majlis National Security & Foreign Affairs Cmte: Fada Hussein Maleki are important too.
He predicts #Taliban’s political life is reaching its end. He states: #Iran isn’t silent or ignorant about what Taliban or Takfiri groups do on its eastern borders. 2
According to lawmaker Maleki, Iranian authorities are really worried. He adds: #Iran’s appeasement is not bcz of #Taliban but out of respect for people of #Afghanistan. He blames the Taliban for incidents happening on borders either by Takfiris or by the Taliban forces. 3

مقالتي حول الماريجوانا واخطارها الصحية والاجتماعية والاقتصادية ورأي الدين في الموضوع.

My latest article about Marijuana; its negative impact on health, community, and economy, as well as religion’s stance on the subject.

-Translation in Thread-

1- research shows very limited if any specific advantage for marijuana (THC, CBD, etc) in treating any medical conditions. And to date, the FDA has not approved a marketing application for cannabis for the treatment of any disease or condition.
2- there is some research that shows some applications in adjunct treatment of a rare kinds of epilepsy ( Lennox-Gastaut syndrome or Dravet syndrome) and also as an appetite stimulant in cancer, AIDS or Alzheimer’s patients.

#Shia cleric Allama Arif Kazmi: US dropped bombs from airplanes when it entered Afghanistan, and dropped human when it left. They took their dogs in airplanes but abandoned their Afghan allies. Those who are unfaithful to God are destined to be humiliated in this way.
#Shia cleric Allama Arif Kazmi: US left Afghanistan so that #Taliban capture the country and Iran send Fatemiyoun fighters from Syria to fight Taliban, and pro-Turkey jihadis attack Syria. Supreme Leader foiled this anti-Shia plan, and asked Afghan Shias not to fight Taliban.

I am going to share some findings of @NamaKadrie about the history of the Hazaras in this thread. This may help you in understanding the current situation in Afghanistan a bit better.
1. "In analysing the history of #Afghanistan, scholars and historians often assessed the independence and autonomy of a given region based on their ability to resist an imposition of tax. Paying levies was therefore the way power-relations and supremacy was understood.
2. "In this sense, the #Hazarajat as a whole was what scholars often deemed as a “semi-independent” region. By 1891, aside from #Uruzgan, every other region (14 districts) of the #Hazarajat paid taxes to Abdur Rahman Khan.
